Southern Oregon University separated from the Oregon University System under the authority of the State Board of Education on July 1, 2014. As a result, SOU established its own governing board and internal audit function. 


Internal audit is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve university operations. We help the university accompish its objectives by bringing a systemic, discplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk mnagement, control, and governance processes. 

Organizational Structure

Internal Audit reports functionally to the Board of Trustees and administratively to the President.
